Scope and Nature of the Journal

The journal will address issues of importance to scholars, students and practitioners of law as well as those interested in information/multimedia technology and its broader applications in law. JILT is the first in a series of journals to be published under the auspices of Electronic Law Journals project.


JILT is published electronically and fully utilises the potential of hypermedia technology available on the World Wide Web. Please note there is no paper edition of the journal produced. All articles are accessible free of charge and a download version for easy printing is supplied with each article in rich text format (.rtf).

The first issue has been online since January 31, 1996, and has elicited praise from the legal community.
